Amazing Japanese Automated Bike Parking
Sometimes you need to tip your proverbial hat at the ingenuity of others. Today, we are impressed and inspired by the Japanese and their superb ‘bike trees’. Japan suffers from a shortage of space, especially in its cities so there is a constant need to innovate to make the most of as little space as possible.
In order to store as many bikes within an area as they can, they have these wonderful underground bike tree parking systems. Fully automated and very secure, these systems not only keep bike storage areas to a minimum, but your bike is certainly safer within this system than it would be tied to a railing. Any chance of getting a few in London?
